2020 VISION releases 1st May

So 2020 Vision releases 1st May 2020 – With the current CV situation, I just couldn’t wait. An unfortunate knock-on of ‘no concerts to pay for physical product manufacture’ for this album, so currently its a digital release only. I’d like to do CDs, and possibly limited edition clear vinyl, but am unsure if this will be possible. If I do, and you’ve bought the digital I can work out some discount scheme if it’s the physical product you really wanted. Also, on release, 2020 VISION is free for anyone that can’t afford it. Would be great if you can, because then I may be able to do CDs etc, but if you can’t, just email me and I’ll send you a free download code for the album 🙂 I’d honestly rather you have the music than I have your money- things are tough currently, for so many of us, and if my music can spread a little upbeat apocalyptic joy, or at least distraction, then so be it 🙂

Here’s Enzosonbenzos, from 2020 VISION:

You can now PRE-ORDER 2020 VISION FROM MY BANDCAMP should you wish to.

Keep well, all – and see you on the other side 🙂

Lietuva EP out with June’s full moon

I have great pleasure in announcing that my Lietuva EP will be digitally released with June’s Full Moon.

(That’s June 2nd 2015)

My latest Sieben release is a digital EP entitled “Lietuva”, the old name for what we now know as Lithuania. The two main tracks have both taken inspiration from there. The first, Black Moon Rise Again, was written to celebrate the lovely Menuo Juodaragis Festival. The second, Užupis, a district of Vilnius, draws inspiration from the constitution, motto, flag, and mainly the aesthetic of this self-proclaimed (Art) State.

Both tracks are lengthy, at ten minutes each. I decided to dispense with the notion and restriction of ‘pop song’ length. Why tie myself to that? I wanted to give time for the ‘top lines’, the melodies and layered vocals to wash over each other, each new wave looping and dissolving the previous. What I do aims to draw you into a world. I figure that if you enjoy that world, you’ll enjoy the extended journey through these songs’ landscapes. Two, new, bonus tracks are included. I always try to give good measure, with what I do. I’ve re-worked the tracks Ogham The Blood, and Knudlustysummer, as snapshots of how they now are, ten years on from their original releases and respective albums. They’re quite, quite different.
